Like a ghost, you concealed yourself in the dark corners of my mind.
Hidden in the shadows nearly forgotten until recently you emerged again, filling the absence of another.
I have made peace with you; I am not afraid. You have been a constant companion to me these years and I have come to value your presence. You have connected me with a deep part of myself, given me access to a new dimension filled with wonders. You are a painful presence, but I do not resent you. You are a gift given to me to teach me hard lessons, to be my guide. I welcome you, my old friend: Loneliness.
